As the Hurricanes return refreshed from a ‘bye week’, head coach, Jason Holland, has named his side to take on the Brumbies with a few notable injury returnees. 

In the forward pack, Isaia Walker-Leawere returns from injury to partner James Blackwell at lock, with Wellington’s Caleb Delany looking to make impact off the bench, after being ruled out following an injury sustained in round three.  

Asafo Aumua retains his starting spot at hooker, and with Dane Coles on an All Blacks rest week, Jacob Devery will look to provide energy off the bench, making his first run of the season. 

Peter Umaga-Jensen will partner Jordie Barrett in the midfield, whilst Julian Savea looks to make his 150th appearance* for the Hurricanes on the wing.
